Once you have created your 10 historic photographic images you must sequence your images and attach them as a PDF or Powerpoint
- Include in your portfolio a typed statement of 500 words minimum defining the stylistic qualities of the photographer you selected.
- Specifically, address how your 10 images emulate those stylistic qualities.
Your images must show your understanding of the artistâ€™s stylistic qualities and your grade is based on how closely you emulate the artistâ€™s stylistic qualities.
Look carefully at the following:
- Source and direction of light
- Black and White or color images
- Subjects and environment
